How to fix broken eyeshadows

One of my greatest fears with make up - second only to getting allergic reactions from an expensive product that I can't return - is breaking them. Who'd want to break something they'd spent hard-earned money on?? So I really try to do my best to not drop anything or wrap make up with extra padding if I know they're going to get tossed around while in transit. My recent plane trips were no exception. Since planes have a limit on the liquid products that can be hand carried, I decided to just put everything in my check-in luggage since they can be sandwiched in between layers of tightly packed clothing. There weren't any mishaps on the way to the places I went to, so imagine my dismay when I found this when I got back home:

I thought I was sure that I packed my stuff properly, but since this happened, its possible that there were gaps in between the makeup and clothes. I read somewhere that vibrations due to the plane engines are a lot stronger in the luggage area, so this is what can cause pressed powder products to crack if they are not packed properly with padding.

Good thing that it wasn't a glass product that broke, since broken eye shadows can still be fixed!

Canada Haul!

Last week I came back home from Canada after a few weeks of vacation...any guesses on what I wasn't going home without? Aside from my passport and plane tickets of course!

Avon Anew Rejuvenate - Day & Night Cream

I've been putting off writing this review for the longest time, but here it is, finally!

I bought these back in May because I needed a new daily moisturizer. Previously, I've been using the Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion for everyday but that didn't have SPF so I wanted something new. I've been interested in trying out Avon skincare products, so when I found out that they had a buy one take one promo on certain products at that time, I bought the Day (for SPF protection) and Night (for more moisturization) cream from the Rejuvenate line to try it out.

By the way, I put the review for both creams together 'cause they seemed to work the same to me, and they're best used hand in hand!

My excuse this time

Sorry for not posting much (again)!! Last time was because I took a vacation, and this time it's another vacation! I was busy packing two weeks ago, then last week, my family and I arrived in the land of maple leaves, die hard hockey fans, and Tim Hortons -- Canada!

 Flying over the Canadian Rockies

The Mountains up close

It's summer right now, but the summer here is definitely much colder than in the Philippines -- at night it can get to as cold as 8 degrees celsius! The climate is also much drier (at least in the Alberta province) so the weather is really wreaking havoc on my already dry skin. I haven't gone here during winter, but I can only imagine how much the weather would take its toll on everyone's skin! Moisturizers, sunscreen (even at night 'cause days are about 19 hours long during summer), and lip balms are an absolute necessity if you don't want to shrivel up prematurely. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually miss the Philippines' humid weather!

Would be posting some overdue reviews and some new stuff I got here soon. See you! :)
